What happened to all the SPS fans?!?!

 

Haha I love my montipora, but also love the squishy waving goodness of LPS. If I were to go LPS, I would totally get an elegance and a huge gold torch!

I don't know where I'm going to get rock flowers from. I might need to "mail-order" them. Haven't found locally. But there are a few more shops I can look at

One of my LFSs is KNOWN for their hundreds of RFAs. Called VIP reef.

 

If only you were in south Florida. Cough. (Reference to you torturing me with the "free" Anenome)

WHOOPS!

 

So theres this local guy that grows corals and ships them from indonesia.

 

Saw it on craigslist- $15 for a gold maxima clam?!?!?!

 

Too good to be true? Nope. 4" Maxima Clam acclimating as we speak.

 

A bit of hair algae on the shell- any advice?

Parameters STINK right now I think! Im going through Diatoms due to the 20lbs new sand. REALLY need to order from reef cleaners, but I keep on getting distracted by other corals!

 

New clam! (Closed up, just finished 1 hour acclimation AND tooth-brushing)

Check out (one of) the dudes grow out/for sale tank! Probably has dozens of clams, hundreds of $4.99 SPS frags. He has a $4000 order from indonesia coming in next month...

From the side Lucinda looks blue and black, but from above its a whole different story!

 

What should I name the new, larger gold clam? LucindO?

Still struggling with Diatom algae. Unbelievably annoying! Sand gets bubbles under it, and has brown diatoms on top. URGHHH!!!!

 

PITA!

 

Any advice? I guess with the 20lbs new sand I am going through a period of HIGH NUTRIENTS! (Curses)

 

Besides vacuuming the sand bed, cleaning media frequently, and 5g water changes weekly (12%), is there anything else to do?

I don't want to assign gender rolls based on appearance, what do you think the new gold clam is?

 

Possible names?

Yeah I know.... Honestly I'm worried about the Dwarf Ceriths. I have a rimless tank, and am concerned with jailbreaks and just how 50+ of them will look in my 45 gallon tank.

 

I could always just get a smaller package, but I want the others!

 

I might just get a bunch of snails from the LFS, like 15 Ceriths, a handful of Nerites, some Trochus, and a cool brittle star. Probably will end up similar price wise because no shipping

Thanks! Yeah the dude is amazing- he has SO MANY CLAMS! I am thinking about getting some of the $10 purple Troceas.

 

I hopefully can keep up w. the water change, and am planning on adding a Marine Magic or Jebao doser eventually.

 

Photo bomb was on page 7! I just took a few dozen HD photos though to record polyp extension and color development... interested? Of course!
